We like to visit in the morning and sit outside in the sun - the outdoor heaters are brilliant and we always visit when the come over to St Peter Port. The coffee is just divine and the service is always excellent.

We eat at one of Londons top Japanese restaurants called Zuma, opposite Harrods in Knightsbridge, so we have a bench mark to compare Hojo's with. To be fair, we didn't even know Hojo's existed (yes we are local), so my first criticism would be that they don't advertise enough ! But that's were the criticism stops. They are actually that...

So different from anywhere else in Guernsey. A refreshing change. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Unpretentious decor. Highly recommend for Japanese style food.

Hojo is one of Guernsey's gems, in particular if you visit in the evening and partake in their Japanese menu. I went recently with my wife for an impromptu dinner. We shared a platter of sushi to start which was very well made, and then shared a quartet of filo wrapped scallops, breadcrumbed pork loin, spiced soba noodles, tempura seafood... More

I did not know much about Japanese cuisine and the meal I had at Hojos was a wonderful experience. We had most delicious raw fish and meat; cutting the beef was just like cutting butter; the ingredients are absolutely top quality; each dish is accompanied by an outstanding sauce. Besides the quality of the food I would like to mention... More

Have made 2 visits here in the evening during the past month to sample their extensive menu of "Nobu" style Japanese food, and have on each occasion been highly impressed. We have tasted the majority of the dishes on option and have not found any weakness. The only dishes not tasted so far are their range of sushi. The real... More

Nice little restaurant on South Esplanade, St Peter Port. While some comments have been that it is too expensive, feel this unjustified. The sushi and Japanese dishes I have had there have been excellent and always fresh and well made. My last bill for 1 person including a glass of wine was £16.00 (the wine was £4.50 per glass).
